Maggie & Matt

Congratulations Maggie and Matt! What a gorgeous morning you had for your wedding Saturday at Serenity Tea House in Zionsville, Indiana. The intimate ceremony on the patio and the reception following was the perfect way to begin your life together. Love was definitely in the air. The day began in the upper room of the tea house for the ladies and next door at the Brick Street Inn for the men…

Oh what a beautiful bride! And the sunflowers were the perfect backdrop. Maggie strolled down the brick aisle with with her dad to her awestruck groom. The ceremony was simply perfection.

After a few photos along with friends and family that came to support Maggie and Matt that morning, there was dancing, laughing, drinking, and delicious eats inside and outside the beautiful venue.

Toasts, cutting the cake, first dances, and the eventful bouquet toss followed. Smiles and laughter filled the tea house and patio.

And off they went, down the iconic brick street in downtown Zionsville. Congrats to you both. Thanks for letting us capture your day…enjoy every single day of your marriage. It truly is a gift.

Special thanks to Rebecca Hampton Photography for helping catch all these moments.

Meredith & Ben

Congrats Meredith and Ben!! What a beautiful couple and beautiful wedding day. Each detail of the day went flawlessly, and it was so rich in family tradition and heritage. The ladies got ready in Meredith’s childhood home, which turns 100 this year. The gorgeous wooden staircase was the best place to sneak a peek at the bride after she was ready. She even got to play a few songs on her beloved piano before the day began. The guys were getting ready just down the road at her grandparent’s home…complete with classic convertibles pulled out in front.

Finally, after all preparations were done, the bride and groom got a first look at each other at the church Meredith grew up in, Trivoli United Methodist Church. Just look at that train! The happy couple joined their wedding party outside for a few photos before the ceremony…such a fun crew.

At 4:30 in the afternoon, Meredith’s father escorted her down the aisle to her groom. So stunning. So romantic. Ben was in awe, and both were so thankful for God’s gift of each other as they went through the ceremony surrounded by family and friends.

They said “I Do,” so then it was time to party. Everyone went to the reception at the town’s country club, enjoyed cocktail hour and a delicious meal. We snuck outside at sunset for some photos on the golf course and came back inside just in time to cut the cake. And the night ended with dancing among twinkling lights outside.

Meredith and Ben…Congrats to you, and may God bless you both as you now live for Him together. I’m so excited to see what’s next in your adventure. Thanks for letting me be a small part of your story. XOXO.

Kimberly & Matt

Congrats to Kimberly & Matt! Your wedding day was pure perfection…so intimate, loving, and fun. As you both became one with family and friends watching, your family grew in size and love too. Let’s take a look at a few highlights of the day…

These gorgeous ladies all got ready at a nearby hotel with the perfect blend of jasmine perfume and Chanel lipstick. Just beautiful…the sisters and the love and excitement they had for their mom. They all traveled to Lincoln Park in Zionsville and hid themselves while guests took their seats. Then, one by one, they walked the brick paved aisle in support of Kimberly and Matt’s union.

With the ceremony over, we enjoyed a little bit of picture time with family. Then we ventured into the Village to grab a few portraits of the newlywed.

Off to the reception! They made a grand entrance and promptly enjoyed the dance floor and delicious food. There was even a macaroon wedding cake! Chatter and laughter filled the room and flowed out onto the patio as well. Family and friends enjoyed every single minute of the lovely reception.

What a joy it was to photograph this wedding and to meet these two special people. Kimberly and Matt, you deserve each other and the beautiful love you have. Good luck to you both as you set on life’s adventure together now.

Zoe & Kyle

Zoe and Kyle are a match made in heaven. Congrats to you both on such a gorgeous wedding day and beginning of a beautiful marriage. The day started off with many fun preparations for the ladies at Holly’s adorable house…

The guys were getting ready just next door…and catching the final few minutes of the World Cup game too:)

The first look was pure perfection. The grounds of Luthy Botanical Garden were pristine and the two were so ready to see each other. He could hardly believe his eyes…

So many fun, and super hot, pictures were taken. This wedding party was such a delight. Everyone was enjoying the moment and knowing that God had blessed each of them with these friendships over their college years.

Time to get married!! Off to Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria, Illinois we went. Laughter, prayers, and last minute make-up and Jimmy John’s filled the bridal room. And as Zoe walked down the aisle, happy tears were flowing. Such a beautiful bride…and a ceremony that reflected their love for Christ and each other.

Time to celebrate with all their friends and family! The Trailside Event Center did not disappoint. It’s industrial chic feel was so unique! The reception included touching toasts, cupcakes, Avanti’s, dancing, and even a Kyle Zeman original song just for his bride.

Such a joy and honor to be a part of this wedding day and to call so many of the people at this wedding friends. I know with certainty that God will use you, Zoe & Kyle, in big ways. Congrats.

Andria & Michael

Congrats to Andria & Michael! What a beautiful wedding day…full of laughter, love, and a bit of Indiana summer heat. Andria was absolutely stunning as she came down the aisle. Every single detail was sheer perfection…

The first look was magical. Every curl in just the right place…but both Andria and Michael were just so in awe of the gift God gave them of each other. A true love story. Next we had a fun time grabbing pictures of the wedding party and sweet daughters. Aren’t those flowers from Blossom and Stem amazing? And Michael had one little surprise up his sleeve for his bride…

The ceremony followed at Ulen Country Club. It was so peaceful and perfectly planned. Such a joy to see the sands combine as the new family became one. Blessed would be the best word to describe the five of them. The reception immediately followed and was a true celebration of love, family, and togetherness.

What an absolute joy and honor to be a part of your wedding day, Andria and Michael! May God bless you daily as you grow closer to each other.

A special thanks to Rebecca Hampton for capturing each and every detail of the day.

Helen & Justin

Helen and Justin…you sure did bring joy into every moment of your wedding day on Saturday. Smiles were endless from these two! They’ve shared adventures together for nearly seven years, but now begins the best adventure…marriage. Congrats to you both! Let’s take a look at a few highlights from their big day. First up…the joys of getting ready, complete with quesadillas and laughter.

Time to put on the most gorgeous wedding dress. Helen and her mom are two peas in a pod!

With minutes to spare, the wedding party arrived at St. Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church in Zionsville, IN. The day could not have been more perfect. They tied the knot with a beautiful service and friends and family.

After a few formal family portraits in the church, the party bus was off to the historic Maplelawn Farmstead for a few fun photos.

Next, the Village of Zionsville did not disappoint as they strolled the brick streets together and maybe even stopped traffic. The wedding party ended at Lincoln Park at the iconic gazebo in town. They enjoyed every minute relaxing together with a few hours between the ceremony and reception.

Everyone was anxious to get to the reception. Who wouldn’t be? It was stunning. The Moontown Brewery was transformed into the perfect venue for a wedding. This brewery in Whitestown, IN was created from an old high school gym. Wood and steel beams were used from the bleachers to make the bar and tables. Incredible.

This crew knew how to party. There was never an empty dance floor after their first dance. The food and drinks were amazing and plentiful.

What an amazing day. Helen and Justin, good luck on your marriage together and wherever life takes you next. It was a joy and honor to be a part of your day and to capture such precious moments for you to remember for a long time.

Special thanks to Rebecca Hampton Photography for assisting all day.

Andrea & Ben

Congrats to Andrea & Ben!! Such a sweet, smiley, relaxed, and thoughtful couple. Their day was beautifully centered around God. His blessings were abundant as they enjoyed family and friends and soaked in every detail around them. Their day started out at Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. All preparations were under way with laughter and elegance….

Such a special time followed. Andrea and Ben enjoyed a first look in front of the church. The rain cleared at just the right time. Could her smile be any bigger??

Off to Central Park we went! Plenty of time to enjoy family and the bridal party, take a few pictures, and cherish each moment. Typically this part of a wedding day is a whirlwind….but I LOVE how Andrea and Ben enjoyed each minute and didn’t rush through it. It was clear that their day was about the marriage and not about the schedule. Perfection.

Back to the church for the 4:00pm ceremony. What is not pictured here you must know though! About an hour before the ceremony, Andrea and Ben took time on their day to encourage each of their bridal party members individually. It was amazing…so humble and loving. The ceremony was a continuation of putting God and others first…

Married: check. Family photos: check. Now on to the super unique venue, The Frazier History Museum, to celebrate with delicious food and a full dance floor. And a brownie sundae bar…how cool is that??

Andrea and Ben…it was a JOY and true honor to be a part of your day. I have no doubt God will use you as a couple in amazing ways.

Special thanks to Rebecca Hampton Photography for assisting all day.

Whitney & Austin

Congrats Whitney & Austin! What a perfectly beautiful wedding day you had. The rain didn’t stop either of you from fully enjoying each moment and each other. It was such a joy to be a part of the day! The day began at The Nest event center in Greenwood, IN. What a fabulous venue! The ladies enjoyed time together getting ready and anticipation built as Whitney put on the finishing touches with her mom.

Lots of gasps, a few tears, and tons of laughter ensued as Whitney came out to the atrium. We all snuggled up on the porch for a few pictures then headed over to First Baptist Church where Austin and his guys were busy getting ready as well.

Such a gorgeous couple, right??? And the church had the same elegant simple perfection. After guests all put their umbrellas aside and grabbed a seat, Whitney and her dad prepared for their walk together to the altar. Austin was smiling in anticipation.

Family and friends graciously allowed us a few minutes to play in the rain together for some of the cutest portraits ever. These two will surely endure life’s storms together with finesse, grace, and laughter…just as they did on their first hour of married life.

Off to the reception! A quick stop for the photo book, and then they entered with joy. The food was amazing, and the dessert bar was sweetly unique. First dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, and garter were all highlights for the Dixon reception…everything absolute perfection.

It was an absolute joy and privilege to be a small part of your wedding day Whitney & Austin. May God bless you both in the days and years to come!

Special thanks to Rebecca Hampton Photography for enjoying the day with me.
